dealt with the budget deficit in a meaningful way and did deal with the issues? one thinks the uncertainty cloud goes away. if it doesn't, there's something else going on. >> i was referring to a sorkin column arguing that a lot of the p.e. firms have to use this money in the next few months. pretty lofty money when you talk about price times, even at dow, right? >> i'm surprised there hasn't been more activity from private equity. they need to put the money to work or god forbid to give it back. that's not something they want to do. they can borrow fairly well. maybe not to the size overall of the deals percentagewise, but incredibly generous terms and we have not seen the kind of deals we may have anticipated. i know andrew wrote about that today. >> i'm pro-law on "mad money" as the large real estate trusts are getting industrial use in warehouses. he said something really interesting, you know what? we are finally running out of space. we are going to have to start building. nobody's building anything. don wood and comes, we are almost out of shopping centers, we have to st

that work for america and how we can cut the deficit and champion small business. i think you have seen a good amount of policy from our campaign and i expect over the coming weeks you will be hearing more. >> and people obviously will be looking for specifics. for instance, i know i am not going to get you to talk about what specifically or how the romney administration would make up for lost revenue, but when it comes to questions like get asked a lot in business circles like the mortgage interest deduction, can we take that off the table or call it safe? >> i think what governor romney said is first of all he is not interested in raising taxes on anyone, particularly during this difficult economic time. i think particularly for middle income taxpayers there are priorities like a tax priority for homeownership that is quite important, but the reality is if you're going to get to tax reform, which we're committed to doing, you have to look at the entire scope of tax expenditures and that's something that we have said repeatedly. ultimately, this is about leadership and what candid

and get the deficits back on track and get the economy back on track and get the pay masses of germany and the ecb off their backs. and the bond markets. all other things did not remain equal, and the economy continued to contract. the bond markets have begun to sell off now. and the pay masters say we need more austerity. for a country that's in deep recession that has 25% unemployment, 50% youth unemployment and a recessionary environment since december last year, that is a bitter pill to swallow. it is a bitter pill literally on the ground where i'm standing because for the last two nights, the public have protested. we've seen behind me these barricades which are blocking the entrance to the parliament for the protesters over the last 24 hours. that is where we saw the rubber bullets and indeed around thousands of protesters just bemoaning their luck in what is a tough environment. what will rajoy try and do next? we're talking about another bout of taxes, some saying 40 billion euros worth of spending cuts and tax hikes, but there are real red lines which rajoy could step

wall street poll but swing states poll. you mentioned that mitt romney's closed the deficit among likely voters for obama from five points to three points. and in florida, he's closed from five down to one which is tied given the margin of error in our poll. in virginia, he has closed the gap from five to two. if you look at the state of ohio, a must-win state for mitt romney, mathematically possible for him to get to it without it but his strategists think he needs it. he needs to make progress there. but the fact that some of the national polls are coming back a little bit, some of the swing state polls are tightening, is a bit of an earn couragement for romney that he still has an opportunity for deficit with three or four points to change the dynamic in some way. he's got to hope that obama is not on his best game. you could have a scenario that like what happened in 2000 where george w. bush moved significantly without gore and ultimately became president. >> it's interesting that the poll also shows, as you mention, this 12% of swingable votes in the middle that he could pot

companies to slash the deficit. will the wealthy flee in response? first rick santelli is working on the next hour of "squawk on the street." hey, rick. >> hi, carl. you know, yesterday when the spanish budget came out people on the floor were running around. i grabbed one of my sources and said hey. do they like it? he goes they must. stocks have rallied. when did the stock market become the validation for all economic fundamentals? we know that quantitative easing distorts stock prices. this is the topic. the real topic is lest we forget because there have been stock markets in the past like the nasdaq that have important lessons for us to learn and we'll go over all of that at the top of the hour.

. first t.a.r.p., auto industry, stimulus, home modification and the deficits are going up, up, up. so i blew a valve on it. what would it be like to have this president with a lame duck scenario where he has no governor, where he can do without the notion that he has to get re-elected again. do you see this as a big market issue, in terms of dividend taxes, obama care, taxes and higher fees there? >> i most certainly do. i think he's going to try to push his agenda. some people want to look back too the clinton years when he lost big time in the midterms just as obama did. >> november '93. >> clinton gave ground. obama has given no ground. i don't know there's any indication he'll give any ground this time. that's a big mistake if that's the case. i hope not. but it appears that's a real possibility. >> how times have changed. i thought mitt romney had a bit of a -- he could do a bit of a "saturday night live" skit, he had some good laughs there, but think about al gore, vice president to clinton, how often did he use president clinton when he was campaigning in 2000? >> times do
